Conscious evolution refers to the theory that humans as a whole can affect the evolution of our species. Adherents of this theory believe that by acting as conscious participants in both our individual and collective growth, we can design our own evolutionary path forward, becoming ever more intentional and aware of our role in the creation of our existence. This approach requires the use of self-reflection in order to free ourselves from the self-limiting patterns we engage in as individuals, as well as redesigning our societies toward more sustainable and responsible practices. While we can’t entirely slip the bonds of our biology or behavior, we can harness our understanding of the evolutionary process and use it as a force for good, acting as stewards for more positive outcomes across our entire planet. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
